CJK 0200 - Overview of Corrections


Credit Hours: 0.5

Prerequisite(s): None
Corequisite(s): None

Correctional Officers are responsible for their own safety and that of others. An officer’s personal perspective, based on his or her culture, heritage, values, and ethics, affects his or her decisions that, in turn, impact the well-being of others. This training program will expose students to the most critical features of being a correctional officer in a Florida jail or state correctional institution.
